Maths and Numeracy


Numeracy is the development and application of mathematics across the curriculum and in real-life situations. Skills in numeracy help children to make informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives. We place strong emphasis on developing these essential skills.

Throughout primary school, our pupils engage in a wide range of purposeful activities which involve them in different modes of mathematical learning, including playing, exploring and investigating, doing and observing, talking and listening, asking questions, reflecting, drafting, reading and recording.

This year, our school has invested in a fantastic new Maths resource - ‘Power Maths’, which will enhance the teaching and learning of Numeracy across the school, benefitting all pupils.  ‘Power Maths’ breaks Maths into manageable steps for children and promotes an active and practical approach to the teaching of Maths.  At the heart of ‘Power Maths’ is the idea that with hard work and determination, everyone can succeed at Maths.
